NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Everyday household items – lights, thermostats, beds, alarms – are increasingly connecting to the Internet to deliver a personalized experience to consumers. But one item in the house is perhaps far more personal than any other – the mirror.
Today’s selfie generation gazes, flexes and preens unlike any prior generation. Research reveals that people spend an average of seven days each year in front of their mirrors; so it simply makes sense for your mirror to become the next great connected device.
Honored this year with a CES Innovation Award. Miliboo Corporation (www.miliboo.com) developed the first smart mirror that combines simplicity and technology to transform daily routines. Set to release in Q2 2017, Miliboo proudly introduces EKKO – an interactive, touchless multimedia platform that reflects not only the user’s physical appearance, but their personality as well.
Miliboo will unveil EKKO at CES in Las Vegas, from Booth #50836 in Eureka Park at the Sands Expo Center. Miliboo will also be on-site at CES Unveiled Tuesday, January 3, at the Mandalay Bay,
“The manufacturing of modern mirrors has drastically improved since they were first created 200 years ago; however, little has changed in how they are used at home today,” says Guillaume Lachenal, Miliboo Founder and CEO. “We have created a genuine piece of furniture which reflects users' personalities and allows them to customize their experience depending on their needs.” Easily integrated with a smartphone mobile app, EKKO is much more than a mirror, adding a substantial layer of information to visual imagery.
Patented glass technology allows for the display of digital information in the bottom portion of the mirror. Such information might include YouTube channels, music playlists, news channels, photos, web radios, customizable timers, weather forecasts, even your horoscope … all immediately accessible within the mirror.
Founded by Lachenal with the intention of becoming a global leader on the connected furniture market, Miliboo is an online furniture store that conceptualizes designs and creates custom contemporary furniture for every room in the home or office. “We imagine and manufacture a range of furniture that are not gadgets but real innovations that bring consumers considerable added value,” Lachenal says. “And this is precisely how EKKO, the smart mirror, was born.”
